We have added some new activities to our toddler home school for the month of February! I started with a Valentine's Day display with Valentine themed books for my toddler to explore along with a Valentine teddy bear. I placed a picture of my little girl with daddy in a heart shaped frame. Then, I changed our calender to February and added any special dates. Last, I tied it all together with a heart shaped rug found at Target's dollar section (located at the store's entrance).
here. Each day, for the month of February, I plan to place a heart in her mailbox and read the verse together!
A few things we have done to help our toddler learn about mail or mailbox is by walking with her outside each day to get the mail together. We also watch the "Baby Einstein, Favorite Places" video where they introduce a mailbox (see video below). It also helps that we have a wonderful postal lady who delivers our mail each day. We often look for her to come and wave hello!
And last but not least...one of my goals for our home school area was to gather counting/numbers activities and books. I've gathered board books, regular books, a puzzle, and a cute counting cookies play activity (thanks to grandma!) for the home school area to have at my toddlers fingertips! I will be continuing to develop the math area for her!
These are just some of the activities we will be focusing on this month! Please check back each month as I feature new items added to our toddler home school! I count it a privilege to be my daughter's teacher! What a joy it is to see her learn and grow!
